Weekend Top 6 Picks

Saturday April 19, 2014
10am to 6pm Free.  43rd World Wide Sketch Crawl in Orlando is on the same day as the 9th Annual Central Floride Earth Day at Lake Eola.
Thor of Analog Artist Digital World is the Orlando host. The idea of the FREE SketchCrawl is that of a global
drawing marathon: Taking a day to journal and draw all that is around you.
1- Artists gather together for the Sketchcrawl. (Lets meet at the Artist Corner at 10am to start.)
2- They share sketches and photos from all over the world after the SketchCrawl.
3- The event helps create a community of friends passionate about drawing around the world.
There are no rules:
Anyone can participate, be it to draw for 20 minutes or the full day . Any level of ability is welcome
from veteran artists to first time sketchers. Any age! Try it with your kids!
Artists can explore the event with sketches and ultimately gather at the Food Court-Beer Garden
at 5pm to share sketchbooks while tasting some of the Earth Day food and drink.
